Hopefully you got your mother something nice for this Mother’s Day, because the Indians sure came empty handed. Justin Masterson got blistered with two outs in the first inning, and Dan Wheeler poured gasoline on the fire in the middle innings as the Red Sox left the Tribe feeling the need to go anywhere but Fenway after today’s 12-1 demolition, taking the last three in the series after the Tribe grabbed the opener. Daniel Bard went six innings and allowed just one run on a bases loaded walk to Asdrubal Cabrera in the third. Justin Masterson went six innings, but allowed six runs and seven hits, including four runs in the first, all of which came after there were two outs in the inning. The Tribe is now 18-16 but remain in first place thanks to the recent stumbles of Detroit and Chicago. They head to Minnesota for a two-game series starting tomorrow night.
